Leading Edge has been incredible.
Cassie: “Leading Edge has inspired me to be a better leader. I believe in myself and my abilities.”
Georgi: “Leading Edge has shown me that balloons can be the best they can me. Memorable.”
Karen: “Leading Edge had enhanced my leadership skills and I look forward to walking on my project.”
Mieke: “Leading Edge has inspired me to shake things up a bit- I want to generate change. Still, at the same time, I’m keen to bring back some traditions we have lost.”
Toni: “Leading Edge has been a great week of meeting people, learning new skills, sight-seeing, project planning, decision making and new friendships.
(presented in classic ‘toast style’:
Today was project planning day, finalising our ideas and timelines for our Leaderskills project. It was a big day, but we made it through and finished by singing Happy Birthday to Vicki.
Tonight we will be having a cleaning party and our final dinner together before tomorrow, our last day of Leading Edge.
We are all sad to go because of the experiences we have shared and the friendships we made.
Thankyou to all the trainers for their hard work in the preparation of Leading Edge, as well as at camp. We all have taken away a lot and are so grateful to be apart of this once in a lifetime experience.
For the final time, P5 out!
What a full on day!
Projects! Projects! And more projects!
It was a good day filled with fun activities. The day was themed around Reality TV Shows. We tossed our projects (egg) around to illustrate that they’re precious but the worst that can happen if they fail is that they’ll be a mess.
We made pikelets as part of MKR and they were delicious! We looked at resources we’d need, budgeting and making a timeline. We made elevator pitches in ‘The Voice’ to our nana, a Guiding friend, someone who could fund our projects and a journalist. It was tough but a good practice to see what we might say in these situations.
We made a project plan and then had a project fair, advertising our projects and getting each other to advocate and debate over our projects.
We then threw Vicki a surprise birthday party. She was absolutely stunned by it. It was really special to be able to share it with her.
We debriefed our campfire, formal lunch and Guides’ Own so that we can do better in the future,
Our last ‘me time’ was spent writing a letter to ourselves, which Penny will mail to us in a months time.
We all had a blast at LE and are leaving very changed people.
Today’s Friday and the Mosaics just finished our Patrol meeting. Before that we useful session but couldn’t compare to the amazing Guide’s Own that we had experienced prior. It was a beautiful ceremony and we made beautiful blooming flowers of self improvement, it was thoroughly enjoyed by our guests from the lunch that had preceded it. This lunch was not only delicious but also a good chance for us to network with our very important guests.
Our other guest today, who unfortunate couldn’t stay for lunch, was Susie who presented our morning session on projects in action and shared what she does with her charity; Goods for Girls. It was very eye openning, some thing that Kate and Sam needed because of their sleep in.
This tardiness was probably caused by the fact that the early risers who normally wake us, like Chloe and Mieke, had gone to an Easter Friday church service. Unfortunately this early rise was made even earlier by Michelle’s alarm still being set in New Zealand time.
This was an early start we didn’t need our busy day yesterday, when we worked into the evening, our last session on networking starting at 8.30pm, at least our stamina was kept up through the session due to our delicious dinner of pizza and marshmallow peaches,
After our trip to Sydney that afternoon we certainly needed stamina, whether it was searching for Vicki’s car, travelling by ferry, eating awesome ice cream, touching the opera house or walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge all the Mosaics had a fantastic day time. Kate especially liked the train trip because it was her first time ever on a train. Sam’s trip to Sydney was a little less eventful due to being hindered from walking following an injury in the morning energiser, but she still had a great time.
The Mosaics have had two amazing days and know the rest of Leading Edge will be just as wonderful.
This morning began when we woke up late
So we had to work at a very fast rate
Morning tea was a hot cross bun
And later on we had a Time Management 101
Guide visitors came for formal lunch
And then we all had a great big munch
We all stood around for Guides Own
Reflecting on our happy tone
The afternoon very busy
And we all felt a bit dizzy
Thank you for a great day
We wish that we could all stay
Rock a by Toni
In the cream couch
When the couch falls
Toni will pout
When the loft breaks
Toni will fall
And down will fall Toni, cream couch and all.
